World Wide Telescope

While Microsoft is actively trumpeting the launch of its commercial software (Windows Server 2008), a small project from Microsoft Research has garnered interest.

It’s called the WorldWide Telescope and basically allows people to look around the night sky and zoom in to see stars, galaxies, solar systems… anything that has been captured by the high-powered telescopes that are whizzing about our heads.

If you’re interested in astronomy or simply looking up at the stars, take a look at the demonstration of WorldWide Telescope.
